About the project

We built a new secondary school in Werribee. It opened in 2024, helping the growing local population get a great education close to home. 

In its first year of operation, Walcom Ngarrwa Secondary College opened to Year 7 students only. It will progress by year level thereafter. 

Nganboo Borron School is located next to the school.

Bradley Moyle was appointed as the first principal of the new school.

The school was known by its interim name, Lollypop Creek Secondary School, during planning and design. Walcom Ngarrwa Secondary College was chosen as this new school’s name following a 2-week community consultation. Walcom Ngarrwa (pronounced wel-cum nar-wa) are Wadawurrung words meaning steps to knowledge.


The school has the following facilities: 

  • a design, arts, technology and science (DATS) building
  • a learning neighbourhood
  • hard courts
  • a carpark.

We are also delivering a community hub. 

Students have great modern learning areas with air conditioning and heating. Outside, they have shade sails for sun protection. We have designed the school to be environmentally sustainable and easy to manage.

You can learn more about the school through their website.


In the 2022–23 State Budget, the school shared in $527.233 million allocated for new schools. In 2023–24, the school was allocated an additional share in $180.295 million.
